“Our obsession with, and dream of, a world where betamax and laser disc rule has ended,” says vocalist Maynard James Keenan. “Time for us to move on. But never fear. There’s a brand new thing we think you’re really gonna dig. It’s called digital downloads and streaming. Get ready for the future, folks!”

The digital debut comes ahead of the band’s release of their fifth album, Fear Inoculum, out Aug. 30 via RCA Records.
The band finally revealed the album’s release date back in May at their show in Birmingham, Alabama. They revealed it through a video screen flashing a date before the band’s encore set—”August 30th.”
Then, they added some music on streaming platforms. Despite the band being vehemently opposed to doing so prior to this year, they uploaded their 72826 demo tape earlier this month.
After that, they changed the logo. The band have historically updated their logo before releasing each album so it was only a matter of time before they did so for the new record.
